Recently I grabbed some preconfigured CentOS 5.0 instance from EC2 and installed our stuff on it from rightscale. The instance was a little old, but I assumed that it would be up to date after a single
However, for reasons beyond my understanding, CentOS is not updated beyond 5.0:
[root@ip-10-102-63-111:~] yum upgrade Loading "installonlyn" plugin Setting up Upgrade Process Setting up repositories Reading repository metadata in from local files No Packages marked for Update/Obsoletion [root@ip-10-102-63-111:~] cat /etc/redhat-release CentOS release 5.0 (Final)
The repositories are active and even my EPEL packages are being updated, but it seems that the person who created this instance somehow fixed it at 5.0. However, I really need to update to the latest 5.x. How can I get yum upgrade to work again?
